Winnie Kincheloe

Winnie Kincheloe, 85, of Burnet died Sept. 23, 2012. She was born on April 19, 1927, to Rex and Tillie Lynn Spillers.

She grew up, went to school and lived her entire life in Burnet.

She worked for Fry Drugstore on the Burnet downtown square and for the Lower Colorado River Authority and then had a 32-year career with the local phone company.

She married D.C. “Chester” Kincheloe in the spring of 1951 and adopted her only child, Dennis, in December 1958.

She loved relaxing at home, keeping tabs on her husband and her son, getting her hair done, playing Bingo, eating at Catfish Parlour and drinking ice cold Coca-Cola — but only out of the original glass bottle.

She will be missed, but is probably back with Chester ruling the roost once again.

Survivors include sister Jo Newton; son Dennis Kincheloe and wife Kim; grandchildren Kyra, Danton and Zane; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers; one sister; and her husband of 60 years.

A funeral service is 10 a.m. Sept. 26 at Edgar Funeral Home, 109 N. Main in Burnet, (512) 756-4444, with Pastor Mark Newton officiating. Interment will follow at Post Mountain Cemetery.
